The Unicorn & the Fencing Mouse


You will be surprised how Renaissance readers treated their books. Among the collections in Marsh’s Library, we find many books covered with annotations, to-do lists, ownership marks, family histories, drawings, and random doodles.

This 48-page catalogue, beautifully designed by Alan Costello and including 33 colour images of all the items in exhibition, contains books with annotations by Jonathan Swift, the poet John Donne, and the Elizabethan mathematician John Dee.
